Dr. Scott Atlas Responds to the Stanford Faculty Senate Resolution



https://stanfordreview.org/scott-atlas-stanford-response/


23 Nov 2020


I was disappointed to learn that the Faculty Senate of Stanford University on November 19, 2020 adopted a resolution criticizing my work for the United States government. We all wish to guide our nation through this pandemic with the best advice and knowledge that we can bring to bear. It is for this reason that I accepted the request of the President of the United States to serve as an advisor since August of this year. I have been honored to serve our country during these difficult months for our nation and the world.

I am a health policy scholar, medical scientist and doctor. I have always used science and factual evidence to help generate the best possible policies to save lives. My views in favor of the careful protection of our nationís most vulnerable while safely re-opening society are far from contrary to science. These views are held by some of the world's top epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford itself, as well as by thousands of medical and public health scientists from around the world. I have also repeatedly recommended mitigation measures, including social distancing and mask-wearing when one cannot distance. Media reports to the contrary are simply false.

It should be no surprise that scientists and doctors may disagree over the best response to the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic. But in responding to COVID-19, we cannot sacrifice the free exchange of ideas, the essential process to discover the scientific truths allowing us to fight the disease. America and its universities must allow differing views without intimidation or rebuke if it hopes to successfully develop responses to such crises and to solve the public health threats of the future.

I wish to correct .........................................

1. Usual tripe: "views are held by some" "free exchange of ideas" "differing views" blah blah

This guy is just another useless MAGA sycophant. Why else would he have ever been chosen to serve in any capacity at all in this mob of criminals? His only area of expertise, which itself is somewhat questionable now, is in RADIOLOGY! WOW! Stop the presses!!111!!!!11

Excuse me while I consult the Maytag repairman about my loose tooth.

2. It appears that Stanford's free exchange of ideas

Indicate that they think that you are full of shit. You advocate deadly behavior at the behest of one of the most willfully ignorant leaders in the world.
You sir, are a political tool. A hack.
You should surrender all your credentials and accolades. You are an embarrassment to reality. My mother listens to your crap and is careless as a result. How many will die because they believe in your expertise?

I read your whole post, and I suspect you're really not a bad scientist.

6. Remember

He is a Radiologist. The pandemic is way out of his field. Maybe they will revoke his medical license.

11. Sounds fair until you factor in 300,000+ dead from his alternative take on the facts ...

... his program just does not work and killing more ain't going to make things better. He hitched his wagon disastrously to the wrong star. If this is the only repercussion from it for him, he will have broken better than he deserves.
